D-Day: The Beginning of the End of the War in Europe [HISTORIC VIDEO FOOTAGE]

D-Day was the largest amphibious assault in history.

The Battle of Normandy, from June-August 1944, resulted in the Allied liberation of Western Europe from Nazi Germany. Called Operation Overlord, 156,000 American, British and Canadian forces landed on five beaches covering 50 miles of coastline heavily fortified by the Germans. The weather, and a large-scale deception campaign to mislead the Germans, aided their momentous invasion. Within one month of D-Day, all of northern France was liberated. By the following spring, the Allies defeated Nazi Germany.

Constitution.com 🇺🇸

I am the supreme law of the United States. Originally comprising seven articles, I delineate the national frame of government. My first three articles entrench the doctrine of the separation of powers, whereby the federal government is divided into three branches: the legislative, consisting of the bicameral Congress; the executive, consisting of the President; and the judicial, consisting of the Supreme Court and other federal courts. Articles Four, Five and Six entrench concepts of federalism, describing the rights and responsibilities of state governments and of the states in relationship to the federal government. Article Seven establishes the procedure subsequently used by the thirteen States to ratify it. I am regarded as the oldest written and codified constitution in force of the world.
